Late 19th & 20th Century Classical Revival

This three-story commercial building exhibits the tripartite base-shaft-capital façade configuration typical of the Classical Revival style. The brick base contains two storefronts flanking a central entry. The storefronts have brick and stone bulkheads, aluminum and glass display windows, wood doors, and awnings covering the transoms. The central entry has a stone surround ornamented with dentils, scroll brackets, and fluted pilasters. A simple stone beltcourse caps the first story. Paired two-story brick pilasters with stone bases and capitals divide the façade into three bays. Each bay contains a paired 8/8 double-hung, historically-appropriate replacement window at each story. Second-story windows have stone sills and soldier course lintels while third-story windows have soldier course sills. Round-arched openings feature fanlights and stone keystones as well as stones at the spring point of the arches. A wide stone entablature and cornice with large dentils caps the third story. The flat parapet has stone coping. The rear (south) elevation is clad in stucco.
